With Christmas one week away and holiday parties in full swing, it's that time of the year when gifts are exchanged most often. If you are like me and like to stay on a budget but don't want to sacrifice spreading holiday cheer, then here are 20 gifts that everyone on your list will love and that won't break the bank! — Maria Fe from Layers of Meaning
Snowflake Wine Cylinder - $14
I think that a nice bottle of wine is always a good gift, but what would make it a great gift is a hand-crafted wine cylinder. Made of a thin layer of birch veneer and featuring a leather cord closure, this is the perfect gift for the wine lover in your life.
Selenite Icicles - $4
I love these realistic icicle ornaments. They're perfect by themselves or as an addition to another gift.
Porcelain Owl Tea Light Holders - $20
How adorable is this porcelain owl tea light holder? It's so cute that I would keep it out all year-round.
Lucia Cherry Tomato & Basil Soap - $11
Lucia soaps are made with organic shea butter and the best botanical ingredients. The foodie lover on your holiday list will love this freshly scented tomato and basil bar.
Pop-print Measuring Spoons - $18
Whenever I want to find unique gifts from around the world, Anthropologie is always my first stop. These colorful measuring spoons are ideal for the food lover in your life.
Chalkboard Spice Jar - $7
My favorite gifts to give are those that can be personalized. These adorable spice jars can be personalized with anything from your friend's name, their favorite blend of spices or even their pet's name.
Lacework Coaster - $6
I usually don't think about buying coasters for myself, but I always love to receive them as gifts. These lacework terra-cotta coasters are the ideal hostess gift.
Monogram Votive - $8
This monogrammed votive is perfect for your stylish, chic best friend. It comes in an array of colors, and at $8 each, you can get two for her initials.
Polka Dot Soup Bowl, Yellow - $12
Even though this polka dot bowl is intended to be used as a soup vessel, I would use it to hold little trinkets and jewelry.
'A Little Holiday Spirit' Hand Towel
I might be biased because I'm a chihuahua owner myself, but this festive little chihuahua hand towel is cute, cute, cute!
Chess Bottle Stop - $19.50
If you are looking for a stylish gift for that special guy in your life, these chess piece bottle stops are perfect. Made of wood and cork, they will add a touch of masculinity.
Gold Urchin Object
This gold urchin by DwellStudio has been on my wish list for ever. I hope — cough, cough — that my husband is reading this.
Red Wool Felted Acorn Ornaments by Green Baboon Designs - $15
Handmade gifts are a great way to help independent artists and to give one-of-a-kind gifts. These felted acorns are great to hang around the home.
Flamingo Painting F075 by Splodgepodge - AUD 15
I've been obsessed with flamingos lately, and I'm hoping to add one to my print collection soon. This watercolor is delicate and feminine, making it the perfect gift for any mom.
Mercury Glass Champagne 3-Piece Cheese Set - $14.99
If you know someone that loves to throw wine parties, then this mercury glass cheese set is perfect for them. It's chic and sophisticated at a budget-friendly price.
'Brave New World' Art Print - $18
If you are looking for art prints from emerging artists for your design-obsessed friend, look no further than Society6. "Brave New World" is my favorite, but there are tons of other artists and prints to choose from.
Bamboo Kitchen Utensils - $6
Have you heard about West Elm's newest specialty store for everyday living solutions? Their Market offers these bamboo dipped utensils that are not only functional, but aesthetically pleasing.
Jonathan Adler Giant Eraser, Lion - $10
I know this is a giant eraser, but would it be terrible of me to suggest using it as decoration?
Voluspa Japonica Candle Tin, Mokara - $18
You've probably heard me rave about Voluspa candles, and I absolutely love giving and receiving them as gifts. This tin is huge, and at only $18, it's a great deal.
